Audio of Morning Prayers for March 07, 2009 for http://blog.euphemos.com
Today we remember Saints Perpetua and Felicity, patron of mothers and expectant mothers. Martyred in Carthage in the year 203, a detailed account of their martyrdom has been preserved in the "Passion of St. Perpetua, St. Felicitas, and their Companions."
From ancient times the Church has had the custom of celebrating each day the Liturgy of the Hours, also known as the Divine Office. In this way the Church fulfills the Lordâs precept to pray without ceasing, at once offering its praise to God the Father and interceding for the salvation of the world. Join me in praying the Liturgy of the Hours today and throughout the lenten season.
